Richard Branson Emerges From His Wine Cellar With a Hurricane Irma Update

8 September 2017 4:33 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

  Hurricane Irma is a powerful storm, no doubt — but as it turns out, it was no match for Richard Branson. Virgin founder Branson — who earlier this week announced that he planned to wait it out Irma in his wine cellar on his private island — has withstood the storm, intact and tweeting. Branson posted a series of tweets on Friday, detailing the wreckage and providing an update via the Virgin website.   Also Read: Richard Branson to Take Shelter From Hurricane Irma in Wine Cellar on Private Island “Communications in and out of the Bvi are still mostly down, but we have. »

Marvel’s The Defenders Season 1 Episode 7 Review – ‘Fish in the Jailhouse’

24 August 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews the seventh episode of Marvel’s The Defenders

As we reach the penultimate episode of The Defenders with ‘Fish in the Jailhouse’, the entire group are caught in some pretty bad spots. Danny remains captured by The Hand while the cops are busy interrogating Matt, Luke and Jessica, eager to book them on any number of charges. It was mostly an entertaining episode, though marred by some less than stellar fight sequences.

The chemistry between the characters was again on point, even between their supporting characters. Despite Matt and Foggy’s recent difference, and Foggy’s desire to see Matt hang up the horns, it was a good move for him to recognize the need for Matt to be Daredevil in this fight. What was also another good touch was Foggy’s point about what would happen should Matt’s identity be revealed. Not only be Matt be disbarred, »

Marvel’s The Defenders Season 1 Episode 6 Review – ‘Ashes, Ashes’

23 August 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews the sixth episode of Marvel’s The Defenders

‘Ashes, Ashes’, the sixth episode of The Defenders, had several surprising developments to the story, but ultimately slumped a little bit. There were still some good character moments, but the episode fell back on some regular tropes of the genre, one of which was already used in the series, that hindered the story as well as a bit of repetition on The Hand’s motives.

To start with the positives, the character work in this episode was great between the four heroes. Splitting them up into pairs was a nice touch. It allowed us to spend time with them almost one-on-one rather than with the group at large, especially after ‘Royal Dragon’ and ‘Take Shelter’ kept them together through most of those episodes. Seeing Jessica and Matt spend time together, trying to solve a mystery no less, was cool »

Marvel’s The Defenders Season 1 Episode 5 Review – ‘Take Shelter’

22 August 2017 6:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews the fifth episode of Marvel’s The Defenders

While ‘Royal Dragon’ offered a breather for viewers, ‘Take Shelter’ lived up to its name with The Defenders on the run and fighting for their lives. It continued the team’s bonding, once again showing off the chemistry between the four actors, and had a good balance of humour with the serious drama. It may not have been quite as strong as the previous episode, but ‘Take Shelter’ was still good nonetheless.

The fight scene at the top of the episode was entertaining with some nice choreography. It was easy to follow and utilized each of the heroes well with their skills. It displayed just how much The Hand outmatched them fairly well; even though one indestructible person, one really strong person and two very skilled martial artists (three if you count Stick) make up the team, The Hand is still quite formidable. »

“Premiere” will kick off on Thursday, August 24 with a screening of the Sundance rap musical hit “Patti Cake$,” followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and Nichols.

On Saturday, August 26, writer and director David Lowery will close out the event with a screening of his 2016 Disney remake of the 1970s musical “Pete’s Dragon,” as well as his latest drama, Sundance breakout “A Ghost Story,” starring Casey Affleck as a ghost haunting the home of his widow, followed by conversations with Nichols.

The Acs is looking to renovate a theater in Little Rock; longer term, Nichols wants to send programs to enlightened theaters around the state and create a grant program to help upgrade needy cinemas. “It’s a shame ‘Moonlight’ can’t be seen in southeast Arkansas, which has a massive African-American population,” said Nichols.  “Come on! Let’s get these films to the further reaches of the state.”

Nichols is also impressed with Afs’s Texas filmmaker production fund, which gives rising filmmakers grants that help them cover costs while taking their films to festivals. He vividly recalls being put up in fancy hotels while taking “Shotgun Stories” and “Take Shelter” at festivals where he couldn’t afford to buy a meal.

Nichols recently taught a course with Matthew McConaughey on “Mud” at the University of Texas, and was inducted into the Texas Film Hall of Fame last March. Next up: he’s writing his first studio movie from scratch, “Alien Nation.”

McKibbon Hospitality, which manages five hotels in Arkansas, is presenting sponsor of “Premiere.”

The directors who can take cinema forward over the next decade

30 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on the directors who can take cinema forward over the next decade…

There’s a cinematic crossroads on the horizon. As the market gets swallowed up by a core consumer taste leaning toward spandex and radioactive arachnid bites, there’s a need for modern thinking, engaging directors to offer something different. After all, there’s only so long the Marvel cow can be milked. It will dry out. It’s the way of things. Studios now bank on billion dollar returns. These seem safe bets now, but for how long? Ultimately it will become a huge gamble.

We’re still seeing interesting film-makers doing their best to re-invigorate or subvert genres. Edgar Wright just smashed it out of the park with Baby Driver. There was a degree of hyperbole about marking him as a cinematic master (until he improves his depiction of women in films, that may allude »

‘Planet of the Apes’: With ‘War’ Over, What’s Next for the Blockbuster Franchise?

17 July 2017 1:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sometimes, reboots can be a good thing. Such is the case with one of modern cinema’s most unexpectedly rich and rewarding (and unique) blockbuster franchises, the effectively rejiggered “Planet of the Apes,” which used the bones of a beloved classic to craft a series that continually stands out on its own merits. Three movies in, and the Fox franchise has become a thinking-fans summer movie delight, bolstered by eye-popping special effects and a reworked mythology that pays homage to the originals while pushing onward.

With last week’s “War for the Planet of the Apes” opening at the number one spot at the box office amidst a slew of stellar reviews, it’s only understandable that fans are eager for more adventures within the world. And while the third film in the trilogy could easily function as the final chapter in the story, there’s plenty more to tell. »

New Trailer For Jeff Nichols Produced Drama ‘In The Radiant City’

7 July 2017 7:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s not easy to get your debut film noticed, but writer/director Rachel Lambert got a nice boost when Jeff Nichols (“Take Shelter,” “Loving”) put his name down as a producer for “In The Radiant City.” The intimate drama unspools in a similar way to Nichols’ work, but Lambert makes a strong first impression with the drama, which unfolds at a slow-burn pace before erupting into fireworks.

New to Streaming: ‘Punch-Drunk Love,’ ‘Free Fire,’ ‘The Salesman,’ and More

7 July 2017 5:01 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Best in Show (Christopher Guest)

Christopher Guest has had an exceptionally strong ’00s with A Mighty Wind and For Your Consideration, and it remains to be seen how his upcoming Mascots will be received, but his arguable peak is still the gloriously funny mockumentary Best in Show. Guest’s other films have lovingly skewered egotistical oddballs and the insanity of subjective or objective criticism, so Best in Show is »

Trey Edward Shults interview: It Comes At Night, Jeff Nichols, movie marketing and more

Simon Brew Jul 7, 2017

Trey Edward Shults tells us about It Comes At Night, its dark history, and odd marketing...

In amongst the bustle of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Despicable Me 3 screenings in

UK

cinemas this weekend is the distinctly unsettling and powerful It Comes At Night. A film marketed, not entirely fairly, as a horror, it’s from writer/director Trey Edward Shults. He wrote the movie following the death of his father, a parent from whom he was estranged until his dying days. That extraordinary, impactful backdrop underpins the film, and was the logical starting point for our conversation.

I’ve been reading quite a lot since sitting through your film. In particular, that the movie was a response to your relationship with your late father. I’m sorry to bring it up, but it resonates through so much of the film once you know that. I read that »

It Comes At Night review

6 July 2017 8:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Trey Edward Shults' Us hit arrives in the UK. It’s a particularly unsettling piece of cinema, too…

There’s very little about It Comes At Night that I’d class as comfortable viewing. The second film from writer/director Trey Edward Shults is 91 minutes of unsettling, often gripping filmmaking, that pitched a tent inside my brain and has stayed there since I watched it. I can’t honestly say I enjoyed watching it too much, but I can say it’s a fierce, impressive piece of work.

See related  Don Hahn interview: The Lion King, Disney, Pixar, Frankenweenie and the future of animation The Lion King: writer hired for live action movie

Its origins are important. Shults has been open about the fact that he didn’t have much of a relationship with his father, and that the two of them only really came back together when his dad was dying. »

Win Loving on DVD

19 June 2017 2:58 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Competitions

To mark the release of Loving on 12th June, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.

Loving is the new film from acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud, Midnight Special). Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed in the film by Golden Globe® nominees Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), fell in love and were married in 1958. The couple had grown up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C. While relatives made them feel welcome there, the more urban environment did not feel like home to them. Ultimately, the pull of their roots in Virginia »

The Best Movies About the End of the World, From ‘Melancholia’ to ‘Dr. Strangelove’

5 June 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Apropos of absolutely nothing (and definitely not in response to a certain world leader taking disastrous steps towards dooming the environment of the only inhabitable planet we have), what is the best film about the end of the world?

Erin Whitney (@Cinemabite), ScreenCrush

It’s a hard tie between “Melancholia” and “Take Shelter.” One is a devastating meditation on depression, isolation and death, and the other is a dramatic masterpiece that evokes the dread and anxiety of a looming end. They’re very different films (and coincidentally opened within months of each other), but both end on final shots that left me breathless. »

Cannes Opening Night: Tight Security, Politics, and Will Smith

17 May 2017 11:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 70th edition of the Cannes Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday night with a star-studded premiere of Arnaud Desplechin’s “Ismael’s Ghosts.” Politics, and the ever-present specter of terrorism and Donald Trump loomed large amidst the odes to the cinematic experience.

No one mentioned the U.S. president by name, but there were allusions to his policies, particularly the ones that target artists and immigrants.

Director Asghar Farhadi — who made headlines after refusing to attend the Academy Awards last spring following Trump’s temporary ban on immigrants from seven Muslim majority countries, including Iran, from entering the U.S. — suggested that Cannes, with its multiculturalism, stands in stark relief to the xenophobia taking place in other parts of the world.

The Future of Cannes: A Brief Look at Critics' Week

17 May 2017 6:06 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Los perros, premiering in Critics' Week this year, is the second feature film by Marcela Said.When this year’s Cannes slate was announced, an absence that many immediately noted in the competition slate was that of Claire Denis’ latest project: Un beau soleil intérieur, an adaptation of Roland Barthes's 1977 text A Lover's Discourse: Fragments. Leaving aside why her last feature, Bastards, was shunted to the Un Certain Regard section in 2013, the fact that one of the world’s greatest living filmmakers was again denied a competition slot was baffling, to say the least. Except that the film will be at Cannes, premiering alongside new films by Philippe Garrel, Bruno Dumont, and Abel Ferrara no less; it just won’t be in what’s known as the Official Selection. Specifically, Denis will be opening the Director’s Fortnight (Quinzaine des Réalisateurs), a separate, parallel festival completely independent from what »
